Islington Admiral United progressed into the second round of Tom Keane Memorial Cup after picking up a 4-1 victory in their first round clash against Murcielagos.

They got off to a great start by taking the lead after just five minutes, when goalkeeper Nick Gardner spotted Chris Bourne and picked him out with his long kick, before he lobbed the opposing keeper.

Murcielagos recovered their composure and kept Admiral at bay for the rest of the first half.

Admiral upped their pace after the interval and on 50 minutes White’s pinpoint pass was volleyed home by Alfie Francis.

Ten minutes later Liam Magwood’s excellent through pass found Bourne whose finish was precise and lethal.
